't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

] >> it's humbling to be here before you in this new role as president obama's nominee for secretary of state. but my approach to this role, if confirmed, is also deeply informed by the 28-plus years that i have been privileged to spend in the senate. that percent specht tiff will remain with me if confirmed as secretary. and i'm already excited by the many ways that we can work together, and in which we must work together in order to advance america's security interests in a complicated and ever more dangerous world. i would add that i'm particularly aware that in many ways the greatest challenge to america's foreign policy will be in your hands, not mine, because while it's often said that we can't be strong at home if we're not strong in the world, in these days of fiscal crisis, and as a recovering member of the super committee, i am especially cognizant of the fact that we can't be strong in the world unless we're strong at home. and the first priority of business, which will affect my credibility as a diplomat, and our credibility as a nation, as we work to help other countries

affirmative done is going to come from those leverage points he cuts president obama has indicated, sadly, he has no interest in being bill clinton, tacking to the middle, compromising with anybody. the only way we are going to restrain the out-of-control spending and that that is threatening our future is to use the leverage points to force real solutions. so, that is the short-term. what about the long-term? what about strategically? or as "saturday night live would -- saturday night live" would put it, what about "strat egery." why did we lose in 2012? margaret thatcher said first you win the argument, then you win the vote. we did not win the argument. long-term, we have to win the argument, and i will suggest to words every republican in this country should have tattooed on their forearm to read in any speech -- growth and opportunity. let's talk about them one at a time. world -- growth -- there was a time when republicans were unabashedly the party of growth. we need to return to that. you know, since world war ii, our economy has grown an average of 3.3%. under barack obama in the las
